NU’EST’sJRtalked about his trainee days on the August 30 broadcast ‘Weekly Idol’!
JR was Pledis Entertainment’s first ever male idol. Because he had come from so far away, he lived with the managers while he was a trainee and ate ramen for almost every meal. Rainareminisced about seeing him during her trainee days and revealed, “He was totally a baby. He wasn’t really manly, and he’d say, ‘Hello, noonas’, and we’d say, ‘Jonghyun, did you eat? Have some bread’, and he’d thank us.”
